Planet Moon no longer a PSP exclusive dev

Planet Moon, the famed developer of titles like Giants and MDK, became a PSP-exclusive developer at the system's launch. Since then, it has released the zombie-shooter Infected and is finishing up the upcoming Sega remake, After Burner. Speaking to 1UP, the team has revealed that they are no longer a PSP-exclusive team: "We're no longer a PSP exclusive developer," confirms Planet Moon chief operating officer Aaron Loeb. "One of the things that was funny was when we made that announcement, people assumed what we were announcing. They sort of read between the lines and assumed that we'd become a handheld developer, which was never our intention with it. The goal of Planet Moon when it was founded was to make original IP and it's still our goal as a company -- it's still our striving mission."

While it's sad to see such a high-profile developer move on to other systems, I hope they don't ignore our handheld for whatever future projects they work on.

2. I don't want to sound negative - but they have established PSP chops, established chops for other platforms ... and look at the top 100. *1* PSP game ... I mean, they *need* to get multi-platform if they want to succeed.

4. Re #4 "they havent made anything stellar for the psp have they?"

You obviously haven't played Infected ... sure it isn't 'stellar', but it is loads of zombie blastin' fun!

5. Whats sad about that?
They need to make money and locking yourself to one system isnt going to cut it. Why the hell did they do that in the first place?

6. Infected, in my opinion, is one of the most underrated games on this console. So much fun, and I am shocked that none of you heathens (pixelator et txa) use the infrastructure function. I mean, I've tried to get on a couple of times, and I find no one! Shame on you!

7. I fiddled with infrastructure in Infected while reviewing, but I am often out of range (or playing over lunch at work, with a locked up WiFi setup that they won't let me access with my PSP ;) )

I just pull it out every now and then because it is totally sweet getting huge combos going!

8. I don't think it's "sad" at all.

All this hysteria about 'needing exclusivity' is bunk, especially for developers. They need to make money just like any other company. I hope they nail a few hits on other plats.

9. And yes, Infected is truly one of the Unsung Heroes of the PSP lineup (or perhaps that should read 'LEGEND of Unsung Heroes')... It's one of the most entertaining and fun to play games on the system.
